JAYAKUMARI, S; SURI, R. K.; RATH, G  and  ARORA, J. Accessory Tendon and Tripartite Insertion Pattern of Fibularis Longus Muscle: A Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.4, pp.633-636. ISSN 0717-9502.

The fibular muscles are the chief everters of foot and play an important role in stabilizing its subtalar motion. In the present case detected incidentally, we report a case of an accessory tendon and tripartite insertion pattern of fibularis longus muscle in the left leg, out of which two slips were attached to plantar and lateral aspects of base of first metatarsal and the third slip was found blending with first dorsal interosseous muscle. Awareness and precise knowledge of such anatomical variants are important to surgeons performing reconstructive procedures

Keywords : Fibularis longus muscle; Accessory tendon; Tripartite insertion.
